  • Secretary of Shred: John Kerry delights Chinese diplomats with guitar

    Dylan Stableford, Yahoo News at Trending Now2 days ago

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry showed off his diplomatic guitar skills in Beijing, China, on Thursday.

    At the urging of Chinese Vice Premier Liu Yandong, Kerry sat down with an acoustic guitar for some nation-building finger picking, playing several bars of an unidentified tune after a lunch at the Great Hall of the People, part of the 5th annual U.S.-China People-to-People Exchange.

    Kerry delighted a small group of diplomats, who called for the 70-year-old to play some more. The secretary of shred obliged, ending his encore with a traditional American rock-n-roll move: a major-chord ending.

    The impromptu performance was captured on cellphone video and posted to the State Department's YouTube channel.

    Kerry also tweeted a photo of his axe-work.

    We've all seen a dog or two in our lives sit, shake, or roll over. They're adorable and often-difficult tricks to teach to a pup. Then we see a video like "Dancing Pit Bull," and it kind of raises the bar for amazing canine abilities.

    In the video, posted to YouTube two days ago, the dog and its human, a belly dancer, perform a routine that defies belief in its intricacy, at least as far as dog dancing is concerned. Not much is known about the provenance of the pair's moves, but the video was uploaded to YouTube by Alex Zhardanovsky, no stranger to viral videos himself, and it has since exploded into quite a hit.

    It now has more than 150,000 views and a huge crowd of fans. People are commenting passionately, writings things like "That's one talented dog!" and "This pit bull should have opened the World Cup."
